Summary

The Foundation Program is a practical qualification which prepares students for employment, and further education and training. This program is designed for students who would like entry into an Aspire undergraduate diploma program, leading to a bachelor degree, but have not completed high school year 12 or equivalent.

The ICMS Foundation Program is delivered through face to face lectures, tutorials and supervised self-directed study. Tutorials will be limited to 15 students. Concepts introduced in lecture format will be examined, amplified and explained in tutorials with the generous use of practical examples. On-line supplementation will be available for most units through the ICMS Learning Management System “Moodle”.

Learning methods utilized in the Foundation Program include Direct Instructions, Discussions, Group work, Co-operative Learning, Problem Solving, Student Research, Role Play/Simulations and Case Studies/Case Methods. A brief description of learning methods and how they assist international students for higher education studies in Australia is as follows:

Direct Instruction: Whole class expository teaching techniques. Example: Lecture, Demonstration.
Discussion: Whole class or smaller groups, face-to-face group interaction in which students exchange ideas.
Group work: Two or more students working together without direct intervention from the teacher for at least some of the time (or indirect guidance), within a structured learning environment focused on achieving specific learning outcomes.
Co-operative Learning: Students working collaboratively to achieve common learning goals. Requires positive inter-dependence, on-going direct interaction, individual accountability, appropriate interpersonal skills, and reflective approach to learning.
Problem Solving: Strategy for posing significant, contextualized, real world situations, and providing guidance and instruction to learners as they develop content knowledge and problem solving skills.
Student Research: Inquiry that is carried out systematically and purposefully, and focuses on revealing some new knowledge.
Role Play/Simulation: Students demonstrate playing a specific role in relation to a specific scenario/situation/set of circumstances etc to develop skill/competency, providing practice opportunities for practical application.
Case Study/Case Method: Requires students to seek feasible ways of resolving contextualized realistic issues, developing the ability to identify a range of potential answers, whilst developing an understanding of theory and problem solving skills simultaneously.
